Intergalactic Moving Day
Written and Illustrated by John F. Malta
"There's little like this on your picture-book shelves..." – Kirkus Reviews
In this unique counting book for young readers, an outer space boy gets ready for a very big change. On the last day of every year his people celebrate Intergalactic Moving Day: the day when their planet fizzles out and they blast off for a brand new home world that blooms in the sky.
As the clock counts down from 10 to 1, the boy and his family pack up all their robots, favorite snacks, mom’s wrestling trophies, and lucky caps before piling into their space pod for launch! What will their new planet be like?
